History

Bavuta Beedi was founded in the year 1905 by Sheik Ismail Sahib. It was a time when industrialization was unheard of. Sheik Ismail Sahib is a committed entrepreneur who strongly believed in philanthropy and social responsibility and helped the poor and the needy. This has ever since become a tradition and is still existent in the family.

He was ably assisted by his wife, in running the beedi business successfully. They handled the people and the production processes all by themselves and the business flourished. The manufacturing and sales were spread across the then “Madras state” which is now divided into TamilNadu and Andhra Pradesh.

Following his footsteps was Sheik Abdul Aziz, his only son. He is a visionary leader who strived hard to grow the company into many folds. In those times, the competition was almost non-existent. Still, he was determined to introduce technology into the business.

It was a time when telecom system is the only available option to integrate his head office and the branch offices and he used this technology to his fullest advantage. A centralized telecom system helped him to monitor all his branches thus reducing errors to the maximum. The Bavuta beedi company grew leaps and bounds under his able leadership.

Today, the company has the fourth and the fifth generation managing it. Apart from beedi manufacturing, the present generation had diversified into various businesses like granites, textiles and Information technology.
